Coby Marches To Fourth Championship

3rd Straight Whelen Mod Crown; Bonsignore Wins At Thompson

THOMPSON, Conn. -- It took 10 seasons, bouncing between full and part-time rides, for Doug Coby to get his second career NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour victories.

Since then, thought, the Milford, Connecticut, driver has compiled a resume that puts him among the elite Modified drivers of all-time.

Coby drove his No. 2 Dunleavy Repair/A&J Romano Construction Chevrolet to a sixth-place finish in Sunday's Sunoco World Series 150 presented by XtraMart at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park to cap off his fourth career championship. He finished 12 points ahead of race winner Justin Bonsignore to claim the trophy.

In the process, Coby joined NASCAR Hall of Famers Jerry Cook and Richie Evans, as well as NASCAR Hall of Fame nominee Mike Stefanik and Tony Hirschman Jr., as the only drivers in NASCAR Modified 69-year history to win four or more championships. more results

NASCAR to Focus On One Tour for 2017

NASCAR Dropping Southern Tour

Charlotte, NC.. (Oct. 12, 2016) NASCAR announced today tha they will be merging the Southern Tour with the Northern Tour for 2017.

With low car count the past few years NASCAR has made a decision to merge the two tours together. What will this do to some of the drivers that run a weekly series in the summer at Bowman Gray Stadium.

With this in mind, there will only be a few from the south that would drive up north to made the events. When you have a place like Bowman gray Stadium that draws thousands to it 15 weekend event an easy for drivers to get sponsors they would more than likelt stay at the stadium.

There would be a few event that they would run together for sure an that would be Bristol an Charlotte.

With this in mind, maybe NASCAR should make the schedule to make it fair to the southern guys by making the schedule equal to both...
